Tween Journal

23 Jan

A friend of mine was bemoaning the fact that she needed to get a gift for her niece, just after she was encouraging me to keep up with my paper crafts…I suggested she get a journal for her, from me. She agreed!

Here it is:


Her name is Korian! A little hard to see here but the colors in person are fabulous!! The inside has four sections of different colors and each one begins with a little tab and it has a ribbon book mark with chip board buttons hanging on it.


Fun, colorful ribbons add pizzazz to the spiral binding and little silk flowers add a feminine touch.



Now, off to get it in the mail.

Jar necklaces

14 Jul

This is a new project that I’ve been working on for my Etsy Shop, Frolicasions. They are little jars with cork stoppers that I decorated, added little trinkets to, stuck the cork in and added some kind of chain or ribbon for wearing. I think you might enjoy seeing some of them.

Head on over to my store to see these…and maybe a few more.

Cheers, Eli

Bargello styled cards

30 Apr

Ciao, Bella! Hello Beautiful!

Bargello is a style of needlework originating from Italy. The quilters stole it and so have paper crafters. I have wanted to try it for a while and I finally got around to it.

For instructions, check out my post at .

(But be careful, it’s an addicting way to use up scraps.)

Until next time…keep crafting.
